Information for lapsed members of FSRH

We understand that your circumstances may change over time. Below there are some options that may be of interest to you if you changed your situation and want to continue your membership of FSRH.

 

I'd like to re-join the FSRH, what do I need to do?

If your membership has lapsed and you would like to re-join FSRH past the 31 March cut-off date for the current membership year or after one or more years, you will be required to pay back your 'missing' years to ensure you have continuous membership which is required for recertifying your primary qualification.

FSRH Council believes that membership of the FSRH – and therefore access to the latest clinical guidance, standards, Journal, CPD questions and regular updates – is an important part of the membership and recertification process. The rules surrounding back payment of subscriptions were tightened up in 2015 by FSRH Council. FSRH is a registered charity and is able to provide its services only through the payment of membership subscriptions.

Contact us by email at info@fsrh.org or give us a call on 020 7724 5534 to discuss how we can reinstate your membership. 

I think I'm entitled to a reduced subscription, how do I claim this?

There are number of circumstances that might mean you are entitled to a reduced subscription rate. For instance, if you:

  • are on maternity, paternity and adoption leave
  • have an income annually of £23,000 or less
  • have a long-term illness.

To claim your reduced subscription rate for 2019 and read the full details on our reduced criteria, you can fill in this online form, we will be in touch with you within 3 working days to confirm your reduced rate and to advise you on how to pay.

If you would like to claim a reduced subscription for more than one year, please drop us an email at info@fsrh.org or call us on 020 7724 5534 to discuss how we can help you. 

We have a form for multiple year claims for reduced subscription and you can fill this in here

I'm retiring from practice, what are my options?

If you are an existing member and have retired or are about to retire from your SRH position, you may be interested to know that we offer a retired membership option. The membership benefits are slightly different in that you would no longer have access to the members' evidence request service or receive free recertification of your qualifications. However, you would continue to receive our regular membership e-newsletters, have full access to 'My FSRH' and continue to receive our BMJ SRH.

Email us at info@fsrh.org to ask us about changing to a retired membership or call us on 020 7724 5534.

I need to pay my 2019 subscription, how can I do this?

If you forgotten to pay your 2019 membership subscription, it's not too late*. If you were a current and up-to-date member in 2018, you can log in to our website until November 2019 and pay your 2019 subscription online. After 31 March, we will officially 'lapse' your membership which will mean that you will no longer be able to access membership benefits or recertify. 

Or, we can take payment over the phone to reinstate your benefits. Please note this method takes a few minutes as we need to enter your data into our payment portal. You can call us on 020 7724 5534 and press option 1 between 9am - 5pm weekdays.

*You have until November 2019 to pay online or by phone, after that we will notify you that your membership has lapsed and you will be liable to back-pay membership fees if you wish to re-join FSRH.

I'm a lapsed FSRH member and I want to recertify my qualification, what should I do?

FSRH Council believes that membership of the FSRH – and therefore access to the latest clinical guidance, standards, Journal, CPD questions and regular updates – is an important part of the membership and recertification process. The rules surrounding back payment of subscriptions were tightened up in 2015 by FSRH Council. 

Recertification is free to current FSRH members.  Recertification is one of our member benefits and supports you professionally in a number of ways.

It helps you to:

  • demonstrate the learning outcomes achieved from your qualification(s) have been maintained
  • show you have the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviour needed to provide safe and effective sexual and reproductive health care (SRH)
  • meet the requirements of commissioners, who often require clinicians to have certified qualifications

If your membership has lapsed and you would like to re-join FSRH past the 31 March cut-off date for the current membership year or after one or more years, you will be required to pay back your 'missing' years to ensure you have continuous membership which is required for recertifying your primary qualification.

You can easily do this by contacting us by phone on 020 7724 5534 or by email to info@fsrh.org. We can take payment by phone using a debit or credit card, it will take a few minutes to do this for you.

You can also pay for a one-off recertification for Letters of Competence qualification. This is £368 per LoC. This option is not available for Diploma recertification. You can pay your Diploma membership back fees by telephone on the above number.
